The program aims to enable diversification of energy resources, ensuring a sustainable supply of energy and water in the future by providing innovative renewable energy and/or clean combustion solutions. The program includes studies to identify the optimum RE technologies to be installed, technologies to be tested and modified to fit loacal conditions, and conducting R&D producing novel systems to address particular future needs of Kuwait. The particular focus technologies are: solar photovoltaic; Concentrating Solar Power (solar thermal power generation); solar cooling; wind power; fuel cells, including hydrogen storage technologies and clean combustion technologies. The steps taken in this program are expected to enable commercialization of developed prototype systems.
